According to TV Guide Magazine, the Daytime Emmy-winner will make his return to the Forrester fashion house on Sept. 26 — the Monday following AMC‘s broadcast finale on ABC.
• Speaking of AMC… Fresh off of his, um, dreamy return, Josh Duhamel has joined the cast of Disney Jr.’s adorable animated series Jake and the Never Land Pirates. Deadline reports that the Transformers actor (or at least his vocal chops!) will recur as “Captain Flynn, a dashing young pirate who is well-known for his legendary adventures on the Never Sea.”
